This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

May 5th

It was mostly grey, with some hint of sunshine, when we left the house at 6.40 a.m. The wind from the NE had not yet picked up. Thus it felt less chilly than I expected - but chilly enough so that gloves were still needed ...

We went straight into Pontcanna Fields, seeing and hearing single ravens in the distance. They vanished when we approached, so we did our walk and exercises. On the way back, one of the young pair walked a few steps towards us. I threw him a few scraps. He flew off after having picked up a couple, and did not come back.

He did not fly into the ravens nest, but towards the allotments. The leaves on the trees have mostly unfolded, so seeing the nest has become a bit more difficult. 

Rain forecast for tomorrow, and the chill will stay with us. I hope this means the ravens will become a bit more hungry, and will be happy to come for scraps.
